Celebrate Earth Day
Of course, we want to model good behavior for our children. Habits they learn at a young age are habits they will take with them as they grow up. I’m sure it will be even more important in the future to live an earth-friendly life than it is today. Here are a few ways to celebrate Earth Day either by yourself or with your child.
Work in the garden with your child. Help them understand where our food really comes from. If they are old enough, introduce a few topics related to gardening like pollination, conserving water, or organic gardening.
If you don’t have a recycling center set up in your home, now is the perfect time to create one. Talk to your child about reducing how much they use, re-using what they use, recycling, and how these three things can be helpful to the Earth.
Trash Pick Up
If your child is old enough, grab a bag and pick up trash in the community. Explain how this simple action can help keep wildlife safe and make our neighborhoods more beautiful.
Go on a Hike
Head out on a hike in the woods or on a hiking trail with your child to enjoy nature. Bring along a book on identifying wildflowers or birds and learn more about our planet. If you don’t have time for a hike, head out into the backyard or to your local park.
Plan a Meal
Plan and cook a meal with your child using all organic foods. Have a discussion with them about how this helps our planet. If you can, include foods from your garden in your meal. Remember to pack your lunches in sustainable containers.
